Off-Campus Student Housing
AAU students have the opportunity to live on and off-campus. AAU's Department of Housing maintains a database of off-campus housing options from which you can search based on criteria such as housing time, amenities, and price levels. Additionally, the Roommate Finder feature provides you with the ability to search for potential roommates among your fellow students.

Please note that AAU does not serve as a rental agent for students and is not responsible for the contract terms between landowner and tenant.
The monthly cost for off-campus rental will depend on such things as quality, location, pet fees, and whether or not utilities are included. Some additional thoughts to consider when selecting off-campus housing:
- Choose an apartment that is exposed to the trade winds so that you reduce the need for air conditioning
- Inquire about utility costs with previous tenants and the landlord before signing a lease

Students are captivated by the unique blend of African, English and French cultures of Guyana. They can immerse themselves in Guyana’s rich history, dining at a local restaurant in the picturesque capital of St. George’s, as native music fills the air. Though many languages are spoken, English is the national language.
RELAX AND REFUEL
In addition, Guyana, the largest island in the Caribbean invites students to explore its many activities and events. In one day, a student could visit the Guyana Botanical Gardens, roam the many pathways, romantic bridges and gazebos of this oasis in the morning, and then return to campus for a hands-on lab on exotic, wildlife species.
